Atlanta Falcons sign cornerback Ryan White, roster back to 90


The Atlanta Falcons signed former Auburn cornerback Ryan White on Sunday after David Mims II was waived injured the day before. This move brings the Falcons back to the 90-man roster limit.

Former Auburn Tiger Ryan White is now a member of the Atlanta Falcons, bringing them back to the 90-man limit. The 24-year-old, at 5-foot-10 and 197 pounds, played both cornerback and safety for the Tigers.

The Falcons added White on Sunday in order to replace David Mims II, who was waived on Saturday after reaching an injury settlement with the Falcons. Though his time with the Falcons has come to an end, according to reports, Mims II will more than likely try out with another team before preseason comes to an end.

During his time at Auburn, White made appearances in a total of 31 games with 83 combined tackles, one fumble recovery, and 10 pass defenses. His senior year at Auburn, White played in 12 games with 49 combined tackles.

Then, in May 2014, White signed with the Green Bay Packers as an undrafted free agent. He has spent the last two years with them, but was ultimately unable to make the regular season roster both times. Now, with the Falcons, White will join his former Auburn teammate, Robenson Therezie. War Eagle, Atlanta Falcons!
